Publisher's Synopsis

A groundbreaking anthology that reveals the true significance of the greatest archaeological discovery of our time.

Reviews

"Contributors range from world-class scholars (Frank Moore Cross, James C. Vanderkam, et al.) to journalists and filmmakers. Shanks, editor of The Biblical Archaeological Review, has a flair for drama, evident in his two final selections: One of these is a reprint of the infamous newspaper interview with Harvard professor John Strugnell that led to Strugnell's ouster as chief editor of the scrolls on charges of incompetence and anti-Semitism; the other is a skewering by Shanks of Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh's recently published The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception, which imagines a Vatican coverup in scroll research."        ~Kirkus Reviews
